Info for Illumini Event 2008

An electrifying art exhibition with a difference, it started with an grand opening night, which was complimented with a full evening of free entertainment, fire performers, jugglers, stilt walkers and light shows with all artists, working with illumination taking place throughout the crypt and its grounds. Illumini will not just showcase art it will entertain, introducing all communities that may not normally visit the arts to a different approach.

Illumini brings together a variety of artists, all sharing a passion for the subject of light. Set in the famous St Pancras crypt, these impressive pieces of artwork come to life in this desolate and unsettling environment. Come along to experience the illuminatory and dazzling effect this diverse collection of artwork has on the crypt’s dark environment.

Travel down abandoned corridors and venture into secret recesses to explore a wide variety of artwork. The pieces range from photographs and paintings depicting light, to sculptural works that literally glow; at once transforming the crypt’s murky and shadowy atmosphere like never before.

The grand opening night of the first Illumini event attracted over 3,000 people, with queues snaking around the church and along the Euston road. The atmosphere was electrifying, children interacting with the performers, visitors got into the spirit of the event by using the glow sticks as their own media to create works of art both on their person or a work of art in one of the many hidden spaces within the crypt.

The exhibition continued on to the 17th September and attracted 7,145 visitors in all. The response from people was amazing and they continually enquired about the possibility of a next event. Many returned again and again finding something new each time. Visitors were from a broad range of backgrounds, from commuters working or travelling through the area, to local people who live in the borough and even people travelled from as far as Devon, Cornwall, Wales the north of England. We even had visitors from as far afield as Europe and the USA. Families found this a great opportunity to visit the arts and introduce their children to it.

Illumini 2008 had been a huge success and done exactly what it was intended to do, it introduced so many people to arts, who had never been before, commenting, how they did not realise art could be so much fun and so interesting.

Press for Illumini Event 2008

Illumini attracted a large amount of press this is just a couple of the articles, written about illumini

Illumini: out of darkness, light 30/08/2008

A musty crypt proves the inspired setting for an exhibition about illumination, says Ruby Russell Wander round the back of St Pancras New Church on London’s Euston Road and an entrance guarded by an imposing row of columns will lead you down into the cool, dark interior of the crypt. Musty stone tunnels give way to dark alcoves stacked with gravestones and end in boards, behind which the crypt retains its original purpose.A new chapter began in the crypt’s history in 2002 when it was noticed by a group of young artists looking for an unusual venue to exhibit in. Word spread and the crypt is now almost continuously occupied by one independent show after another.For Jane Webb, an artist fascinated by light, the crypt had an instant appeal. “It’s very atmospheric,” she says. “It gave me the idea of giving artists from all different backgrounds the chance to come together and create an event where we not only exhibit but entertain.” In the show that developed, 13 artists will transform the space with works that use light as their inspiration or medium.

Figure this: Cybernetic Humanoids by Jane Webb

The opening night will have a festival atmosphere; fire performers and stilt walkers will entertain an audience that Webb hopes will encompass families and those who might feel excluded or simply bored by a more conventional gallery.The artists’ use of light ranges from visual jokes like light bulb-shaped candles and illuminated plugs, to Liz Murfitt’s photograms that use light in a painterly way on photosensitive canvas, updating a process used by Man Ray.

Madi Boyd has created an installation constructed as a grid of threads across intersecting planes, illuminated by projected film. It creates a kind of optical illusion where it becomes difficult to judge what is solid and what is light, or to gauge the physical dimensions of the piece itself. I’m trying to work in quite a scientific way to see the limits of perception, to see how you can fool the brain,” Boyd explains. “Thatled me into an enquiry into the connection between seeing and knowing and the ambiguity of perception.”The crypt is a perfect space for my work because, on a physical level, I’m trying to sculpt light. For me, a blank canvas is a pitch-darkroom.” Artists like Boyd draw our attention to the process of looking at the world.

The show also acts on our primal attraction to bright lights, whether mimicking the tricks of advertising in the case of Suzan Swale’s Nauman-esque neon slogan, Tell Me No More Lies, oras in Jayne Lloyd’s sculptures, by making references to the connection between light and domesticity. Lloyd’s chair-like structures are internally lit and covered with painted paper like Chinese lanterns. The light extends the forms with a warm, inviting glow, while the paper excludes any physical interaction with the piece, raising more complex ideas of belonging and place.

Some of the most accessible works on display will be sculptures by Webb. She creates figurative forms embedded with recycled electronic components and flashing LEDs, inspired by our increasing reliance on technology. The unique setting of the crypt will give her cyborgs of an imagined future a chance to commune with the ghosts of London’s past.’Illumini’ is at The Crypt, St Pancras Church, London NW1 from Thurs.

The Review – FEATURE
Published: 4 September 2008

New reverence for technology

THE Cyborg sculptures looming eerily in the cool dark alcoves of St Pancras Crypt from today (Thursday) could symbolise a carcass, an idol or perhaps a prophecy.

Jane Webb is known in the art world for her stained glass wall panels and light features made from mirror but her primary fascination, is with the influence of prosthetics and cybernetics on the modern psyche.
Using bits of old circuit boards and scrap computer to create bright and beautiful sculptures she aims to highlight how our reverence for technological tools affects the way we see ourselves.


Webb said: “These days with our accessories and gadgets we are all very much starting to look like mechanical beings, robots and sci-fi phenomena. It’s worrying how far it might go.”

cyborg art made from recycled junk

The opening night at the St Pancras Parish Church in Euston Road, Bloomsbury, should be a packed out affair with outdoor fire shows, jugglers and stilt-walkers.

Everyone is welcome said Webb.
“It’s completely an open affair and free to everybody.
“The whole point of the show was to get a mix of all kinds of different people come and enjoy the work. When exhibitions open up they hold a private viewing just for the elite which I think is very off-putting for ordinary people.”

She said: “I think art should be seen and free and accessible to everyone. It’s a distraction from the daily grind – a way to relax.” She has found artists at all stages of their careers from students to professionals and even people that have no experience in the field.

Andrea Tynmes an art student has used pictures she shot of the lighting used at various Amy Winehouse gigs as inspiration for her paintings. Her work will be exhibited alongside Webb’s mirror light box of Amy’s face, which glows bright red at night and is to be donated to the songstress after the show.
Nominee for the Garden Photographer of the Year award, Liz Murfitt has contributed photograms to light the corridors and stairwells while Silvui Pascal’s short film will offer a child’s eye view of the speed of light and movement.
